From its inception this store has had a definite purpose, the fulfilment of which purpose must culminate in two worthy achieve- ments; namely, in building of a great business, and in conserving ptiblic good. . ... And with this purpose we set out to sell better clothing than had previously been sold m Dallas at these particular prices—5>lo, $20 and $25. —*►—- • - **- -.•* - .. • THE RESULT Our clothing lmsisess has nearly doubled our expectations. We have sold more suits and overcoats this season at these prices, probably, than have ever been sold, by any store in a city the sine of Dallas. The reason for this is apparent to those, who come here after shopping the city over in search of a suit or overcoat. INVESTIGATE THIS CLOTHING Knowing the shallown...

" 1 t A BACHELOR'S CHRISTMAS "■ fmm i^T WAS Christmas eve. One of those Lai T 1 crisp, cold, old fashioned Christmas eves y||JU with plenty of snow on the ground, when the atmosphere seemed to breathe *" ' the spirit of good fellowship. The streets were deserted save for a few belated pe- destrians hurrying home with their arms full of bun Jles. Tohn Bingham, known to his acquaintances- he' had no friends—as a crabbed, crusty old bach elor, was one of a half dozen regulars who put in an appearance at the el\ib that evening. He •had a home, but it was a cheerless place, despite the fact that it possessed all the comforts money could buy. The club was his real home. A cigar and plenty of drinks was his sole companions. The other members of the club had long ago learned to let him alone. Forty years earlier John Bingham came to the city to "make his fortune." And unlike many others, he made it. There was a grim determi- nation behind the ambition that accomplished it of which the world...

Ml 1 'S TOM, By John Whitcomb vEAR moonlight and cloudy haze by- turns ; keenly cold, with crunchy snow; and steel bright stars looking out of cloudy rifts. Santa Claus had been on an exploring expedi- tion over the great city, with general reference to finding out the good children. He had pretty nearly made out his lists, but was just taking one more look to be sure that none were forgotten, as it was only the night before Christmas eve. Jolly and contented, with the calm serenity which proceeds from a clear conscience, and a vigorous digestion, his cozy little sleigh skimmed over the cloudy road, his reindeer striking tiny sparks from the highly electrified snow clouds as they passed. "Meow!" whined out from behind a chimney of a tall, shabby tenement house in the easterly part of the city. "Eh! What's that?" "Meow! It's me. Can't you stop a moment and hear what a poor cat has to say this cold night?" "Why, is that you, Tom?" exclaimed Santa Claus. "I thought that the butcher's d...

TEXAS AFTER THE WAR By COX,.' ACIE SOONER IAI BS ! CRAZY fanatic, whom they called A. C. Hill, was sent to Denton by the Union League, to take charge of the police and arrest the Kuklux Klan. He cut a .wide swath, and boasted that he would have every Kuklux in a cage and wearing stripes in less than three months. He •trutted into the Monitor printing office at Denton, followed by a number of his police, and denounced the Klan in unmeasured terms. Then, swinging his arms, he cried : "Does any man take it up'?" The editor te- plied that he had ceased to be a war-horse, and had hoped the war was over. There were others in the office, but no one took it up. No one spoke to him. Col. O. G. Welch,-.who was in the office at the time, also treated him with con- tempt and left the office. Hill reported to the Union League the contemptuous manner of his reception at the printing office, and it was re- solved to arrest the editor and twelve others, and throw them into prison at Tyler.

Now this is the dwelllig place of the Harle- quin set—Harlequin, Columbine, Clown and Pan- taloon. It is one cottage in a tittle colony on the lower slopes of Mount Olympus (where the high gods dwell: Jupiter And the like), and is most important because it contains the oldest Inhabitants.
